    I reckon they have the right fella this time, if the bike was used in this then it narrows it down to the local area and plenty will know who it is.

    You're probably right Bobby and I know they're trying to let the public know that they're on top of this but they're a bit too quick sending specifics out again for my liking. They've ruined one chap already so a bit of caution until they've at least nailed it down would make sense.

    My heart goes out to this girl's family absolutely heartbreaking. Beyond belief that this can happen in public in broad daylight and it has me very worried for my two daughters. I can think of nothing worsez one thing to lose someone to a murder of this degree but I find it hard to imagine the pure and utter shock of the family, the girl went for a run at 4pm. Truly truly incomprehensible. I hope she did not suffer much.

    Some of the racism I'd seen online about the initial suspect is very disheartening.

    Suppose it's easy to thrash the house and arrest all in sight when you think he's done what they're accusing him off. Dissapointing from the Gards in question if it's the case.

    Obviously not looking to detract at all from the real victim here.

    €1000 tax free bonus announced as well for some but not others in the health service. Its a can of worms they shouldn't have opened if they had any cop on.

    I thought it was everyone? Student nurses, Nursing home staff and private hospitals. I'm sure I read it on one of reporters. Stand be corrected

    Bat out of hell was written as a dystopian future rock version of Peter pan, I can't remember the name of the guy who wrote the album but it will always be remembered as Meatloafs, he was the whole personality thar brought the album to life.

    Sad loss to the world.
